Despite an affordable South American wine list and flashy decor, this Park Slope Mexican eatery can’t compare to its more authentic neighbor, Tacos Nuevo Mexicano. The choose-your-filling tacos (we went with flaccid, underseasoned mahi-mahi) quickly devolved into a soggy mess, while a dry-aged strip steak with chipotle mashed potatoes was unforgivably tough. We can think of better ways to spend our cash, starting just a few doors down.
